However, even though I was her competitor, she still acted as my coach helping me fulfil this achievement. Throughout the race she continuously cheered me on in-between breaths and still talked me through my warm up and pre-race advice. She even waited for me at the end of the race, timing our distance so that we could go through the finish line together, showing true sportsmanship/friendship. This accidentally meant I was put in first place by a fraction of a second, even though Maddie was the real winner, woopsies!
I was very proud of the other Mavericks, all showing their training has payed off, with podiums all-round! My mum made me proud racing her socks off and also my boyfriend for being first sport male. I'm so proud of you all, well done!
